The last run of Wyatt Earp and his band of rainbows… oh wait wrong scene. The last run of the trophy Crowley rainbows have come and gone. Most, if not all of the trophy trout have made their way back to the lake. You may still find the occasional brown trout lurking around. The water is running pretty stained below the lower entry of Hot Creek and cleaner above the upper entry. Some smaller school sized and wild fish are feeding on small nymphs and Blue Wing Olive mayflies in the afternoons. Try our Hi- Vis Blue Wing Olive in size #16-18 when you see them breaking the surface. Smaller flies are best currently like #16-18 Copper Tiger Midges both long and short, #16-18 Gillie Dark and Light, #16-20 FB Pheasant Tails and Tungsten Pheasant Tails, and #14 SD Crawlers in red and brown still getting bit. Use caution when driving in the mud bogs.
